The Cape Town Zionist Caravan 2013 went along the Garden Route to visit the smaller Jewish communities in the area
The aim of the Zionist Caravan initiative is to reconnect communities with the beautiful side of Israel that isn’t necessarily portrayed in some of the media.
The 2013 Caravan crew included Yaniv Nachmias (Aliyah, Community and Habonim Dror Shaliach), Tamar Lazarus (President of WIZO South Africa), Malka Solomont and Shani Yedidovich (Bnei Akiva Shlichot), Mor Arbel (Netzer Shlicha) and Dovi Knohl, Daniel Levian, Ido Lifshitz, Avishi Levin and Dotan Farangi (Bachurim from the Yeshiva of Cape Town).
The Caravan visited five communities and had seven exciting different events in George, Plettenberg Bay, Port Elizabeth, Oudtshoorn and East London. This included visiting small Jewish communities and Christian Zionists in these cities and towns and an event in Theodor Herzl School in Port Elizabeth. In total, we met with more than 200 people.
